LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

EXECUTIVE STAFF EXECUTIVE PUBLISHER

Ali Vira

Hey it’s that time again! It’s been two months since our last issue and I’m proud to say that we’ve made a lot of strides since then.

006 Good Luck Have Fun

From new content to new staff to a new website, we’re trying to up our game. The first thing that you’ll probably notice is our expanded coverage. As of today, GLHF is opening its doors to accept and showcase content for both League of Legends and Dota 2! Clearly the eSports scene has grown a lot for MOBAs, and we thought it would be a great idea to throw our hat in the ring and start coming up with high quality journalistic articles for these new fields as well. The second thing we hope you’ll notice is our new website and layout. We’re trying to experiment with our methods of communication a little bit, and one item that always stood out to us was that we didn’t want to wait two months to show our readers content that is immediately relevant. Don’t worry, the magazine will still be there with some unique content as always, but we aim to ramp up production on the live-site in parallel to the magazine design. Make sure

to keep checking our twitter and our homepage for new content! As with any endeavour on this scale, we face our fair share of setbacks, luckily thanks to our fabulous team of editors and designers we pulled through. If you’re interested in helping out, make sure to send us an email at editors@glhfmag.com. It’s an exciting time for eSports; the StarCraft scene is picking back up, we just finished some great tournaments here in Canada, and MOBAs are bigger and badder than ever before. Well, without any further ado, we hope you enjoy the 7th issue of GLHF. Until next time,

Ali Vira Executive Publisher
